You will need •Waterproof Black Sharpie Markers (or any waterproof markers) •FAS Painting Dyes and Fine Brushes. Draw a picture using the black Sharpie markers. Using the markers enables the children to add lots of fine details to their drawings. The picture is then coloured with FAS Painting Dyes.
It doesn’t matter if the dye runs together or the lines are gone over. This gives a nice watercolour effect and the black lines always stay visible. More details can be added after the dye has dried. The process can also be done in reverse with the dying done first. Share and Enjoy Tony www.FASpaints.com
Here is a great and simple colour project for the kids.
See how you MonoPrint with School Super Tempera Paint
This is quick, colourful and easy. It is block printing at its simplest form
using a Tempera Poster Paint with fingers and kids do love pushing paint around
with their fingers.
So simple yet so much colouful fun.
: Sketch Paper
: Tempera Paint in simple bold colours
: Paint pots or dishes.
: Printing plate: (old plastic placemat, styrofoam board,
any flat non-porous surface). We used a small sheet of plexiglas. You can use a wipe-able bench top.
: Roller or a wide paint brush.
: Apron and a cover sheet, newspapers or paper towels.
Lets Get Started:
Spread Tempera Paint evenly over your
printing plate with a wide brush or use a roller. Making sure that it is slightly smaller than
your paper. It is not important to make
it straight edged in fact it adds to the final effect.
draw designs on the painted area. The
more simple and basic picture the better. What you are trying to do is remove
the paint with your finger. If you are not happy with the design you can
re-roll the area and start again.
happy with your design, lay the paper on top, making sure to cover the area
with paint. Try not to press on the painted area too much and also try not to
move the paper around as it will smudge your final design.
peel the paper from the printing plate to reveal the mono printed image.
plate can be reworked to be used again and again for the whole class.
